Ministry in 2012

Since the beginning of 2012, St. James has been hard at work doing ministry. In January, our Social Ministry Committee began working hard to build a food pantry in the back of our fellowship hall with much more shelving than our former food pantry and a bigger space to hold more canned goods for the many needy people in our community.

In a related effort, our Youth had a lock-in and collected 970 canned goods to help fill our bigger food pantry, which was close to empty. Our youth also had a bake sale, soup sale, and loose change collection, which helped them to raise money which would enable us to continue to keep our food pantry full.

Our church is continually collecting canned goods to feed the hungry people in our area. If you have any canned goods that you would like to donate, please drop them off in our office during our open hours Mon-Thurs, 9AM-2PM. May God continue to work through the Food Pantry Ministry here at St. James as we share the love of Christ with all who are in need.
